Honoring the Greatest Generation
In the Democratic Radio Address to the Nation on Saturday, John Kerry said we can honor the legacy of the Greatest Generation by building an America that is once again respected in the world. Kerry is attending the afternoon dedication of the WWII Memorial with Joseph Lesniewski, one of the Band of Brothers who parachuted into Normandy on D-Day.

Why Japanese Culture Creates Hikikomori, a Common Form of Mental Illness in Japan?
Hikikomori kids lock themselves up in their room and don't come out. They say it is a unique Japanese phenomenon. I think we should look at the mental illness issue in Japan generally. As I keep writing here, suicides are among the top in the world as well. Many people have the misconception that just because Japanese sing karaoke and go drinking a lot, Japanese don't have stress. But it's the "don't worry... just try harder..." speech during these drinking sessions that drive people into mental collapse. There is a word in Japanese, gambatte, which doesn't have an equivalent English term, but means something like "work harder" but with a nuance that you will be rewarded with praise if you do. This word is an example of the "work harder" ethic which I think is a problem. Working harder doesn't necessarily lead to working smarter. In fact, many people who work hard avoid thinking or making hard decisions and end up in a mess. I call it kurushimi no bigaku or "the aesthetic of suffering" which makes everything OK if you tried hard enough

ひ きこもりの問題は最近にわかに注目されてきましたが、「ここ数年で急に増えた」ということはありません。かつては「ひきこもり」という名前がなかったとい うだけで、同様の事例は少なくとも70年代後半から報告されていました。ただ、その一部が長期化し、長い間に、じわじわと蓄積して増えてきたということは 言えるかもしれません。

ど ちらかといえば内向的で、手のかからない"よい子"が多い」と言われますが、特定の性格傾向、家庭環境との関連性は明らかではありません。活発で社交的な 人、強く自己主張するタイプと見えていた人がひきこもりになってしまうこともよくありますし、家庭環境もさまざまです。

D-Day memories
Sixty years after the allied landings that hastened the end of World War II, memories of those cataclysmic days in June still excite tears, anger, wonder - and sometimes laughter - among the people of Normandy. Hugh Schofield reports

The 2004 US Presidential Election - A View From The Web

2004 Presidential Campaign Sites
The 2004 Presidential Democratic primaries are underway. Candidates have begun to drop out of the race, and some have removed their campaign sites from the Web. The features that were available from those sites when they were active can still be found in the dark gray columns. As the candidates who have dropped out of the race continue to maintain a Web presence, we will continue to track their sites. Follow these sites in our grid below by locating the light gray columns. Compare how their Web presence changes by clicking stars in the Campaign Web Sites section of the grid. The main Web sites of current and former candidates for the Democratic and Republican nominations can be compared feature by feature. Click stars in the grid's feature sections to view specific features on the analyzed sites.

Prep School Peers Found Kerry Talented, Ambitious and Apart

He was a champion debater, a good student, a strong and graceful athlete in a small, judgmental universe that prized such skills and knew him well. But for five formative years, John Kerry stood a step apart at St. Paul's School, gaining achievement more than acceptance.
Danny Barbiero, a middle-class boy from suburban Long Island who was Mr. Kerry's best friend, remembers how they made common cause in a boarding school full of Pillsburys, Peabodys, Pierponts and Pells. One day, Mr. Barbiero went to see a favorite teacher, the school's first black faculty member, and found someone else already there.

Trolls and Schopenhauer

One of the most interesting knowledge you can acquire, reading and analysing discussions, is the wealth of Eristic Dialectic stratagems they often use. Readers that will find the time to read Schopenhauer's masterpiece, will recognize most of the rhetorical tactiques (or "stratagems") as excellent methods in discussions. This kind of knowledge, these 38 "stratagems" translate into real power for those who use communication technics daily.

Google's Unique IPO Auction Could Backfire on Investors

The hype surrounding Google's IPO, coupled with the mass appeal the company has built through its popular search engine, is piquing the interest of people who don't normally buy stocks. To be sure, Google's IPO isn't about altruism. To participate in the auction, prospective bidders must open an account with one of Google's IPO bankers, Morgan Stanley or Credit Suisse First Boston.

Indians were slaves in American kitchens

Indians next? Should Bush start apologising again? It just came to light that 20 Indians escaped after being forced to work for the American military for 9 months without pay and under threat. In the midst of todays general atmosphere of apologies, is Bush igorant, or ignoring the Indians?

The latest Poll shows Senator John F. Kerry with 47% of the vote and George W. Bush with 43%.

This is the first time Kerry has held a three point edge for three straight days since March. Neither candidate has held a three-point advantage for four consecutive days since Kerry emerged as the Democratic frontrunner. When one candidate holds a "lead" in the tracking poll that vanishes after three days, it suggests that a single night of tracking was especially favorable to that candidate. If a candidate, in this case Kerry, is able to hold a lead for more than three days, it could signify a trend.

Kerry Life Story Will Be Focus of Big Ad Buy

John Kerry's campaign announced Monday that it was making what it called the largest single purchase of advertising time in a presidential race, unveiling commercials that tell Mr. Kerry's life story from birth to the Vietnam War to two decades in the United States Senate.
Mr. Kerry's advisers described the advertisements, which are to run heavily in 19 states through the end of the month at a cost of $27.5 million, as the beginning of a long process of introducing the candidate to general election voters. It is a move many Democrats have warned was too long in coming.

Berkshire Hathaway has hold this year’s annual meeting on Saturday, May 1 at the new Qwest Center in downtown Omaha.

The Berkshire Hathaway meeting, the biggest annual shareholders meeting in the US, and surely one of the most festive, is filled this year as most with early investors. They are rich or richer because of their Berkshire investments, and they focus their gratitude on the founder, chairman and main engine of the company, Mr. Buffett, a lifelong Nebraskan who has cultivated a folksy, down-home style while making a personal fortune in the tens of billions.

Average Annual Gain of Berkshire Hathaway between 1965 and 2003 was an annual 22.2%
